31x15.5/15 They sure aren't cheap either! One rear leaks down & both weather cracked. The one may last well with a tube. Cheapest I find ags for this size is $225 per plus shipping! The fronts are brand new, but one leaking at the rim.

Daniel, I would try running tubes for a while in them, I had good luck with tubing weather cracked tires.

Congrats on the great find Dan. I saw one of those at last years NYS Pageant of Steam. Also saw the Simplicity version. I've wanted one ever since.DSC01747.jpg

Great looking tractor Daniel! I've never seen one around these parts. I don't even know if there is or was an Allis dealer in the area. From your description it seems like a really well equipped tractor and is big and strong enough to do some real work.

Took a couple rings off the piston & slipped them into a cylinder to check the gap. At their max of .020. So today I ordered 2 sets of rings, an air filter, intake/exhaust gaskets, and head gaskets. Had to put it on plastic, but wanted to just go ahead & do the engine over while she's apart. The rod/crank/cam bearings seem just fine, but I'll plasti-gauge the rods to be sure.

Daniel, that thing looks near on bullet proof! I love the big tractor manufacturers that made mini versions for GTs. Like the MF 165 of my Dads and Ryans 10
